Island Watersports have always been based right in the harbour in Puerto del Carmen, but the popular diving centre has recently moved to the “other side" of the harbour into new premises.

Georg and Ian have completely kitted out their new units - you access them by driving past the old dive centre and continue to the roundabout next to the harbour petrol station. Turn right there and walk all the way down to the far end of the harbour wall, and you’ll find them.  read more »

The full event programme has yet to be confirmed, however registration for the run opens today at 16:00.

The Wine Run Lanzarote appeals to runners and walkers of all fitness levels and is a really popular event in the sporting calendar for the island. The run is a tough 22km course through the wine region of Lanzarote, with wine & water aid stations along the way. The walk covers approximately 13km of the same route, once the runners have passed through, and is a leisurely stroll through the countryside, tasting our local wines as you go.   read more »

CD Marino 2 UD Lanzarote 1

It wasn’t a good start to the day for Lanzarote with their airplane suffering from mechanical failure the flight was delayed for two hours and the kick off was changed from noon to 1.40pm.Lanzarote captain Rosmen alongside fellow islander Kevin now captain of C.D Marino.Lanzarote captain Rosmen alongside fellow islander Kevin now captain of C.D Marino.

The home side were dominant in the opening stages with striker Adán coming close in the 10th minute and it was just five minutes later the same player finished off a good move to put his side 1-0 in front.

Lanzarote did begin to play better but most of their attacking play came from dead ball situations which rarely threatened the Tenerife keeper Cicoviç.  read more »

And we’ve now been able to get some fabulous images taken up close with the statues, from our friends at Manta Diving.

As you can see, some of the statues that were put down originally, already have a good growth on them, and the museum is starting to fulfil its role as an artificially reef.
